Great- and much needed - article. It reminds me of the prescriptivism versus descriptivism debate. How things are versus how they should be. Too many self-proclaimed language purists out there for my taste. I know linguistics professors who would never correct anyone and then you have some guy who thinks he knows-it-all and goes around correcting people. Absurdly funny. Thanks for writing!
